CBD has never been more popular with its reported benefits for everything from anxiety to nausea reaching a fever pitch. Who doesn’t want a little relief or pick-me-up when things get a little hectic, especially as a new mom? With late-night feedings and the ups-and-downs of hormones, as well as the reality of postpartum depression or anxiety, it’s no wonder why new moms are dabbling in the therapeutic benefits of CBD. But is it safe to use CBD while breastfeeding?
There is little research on CBD and breastfeeding
There have been a number of studies researching the effects of CBD on anxiety and nausea, including studies linking marijuana with lower birth weight in babies, which is why OB/GYN physicians tend to advise against its use during pregnancy.
